Now, we are finally convinced that GOOGLE ANALYTICS (which also comes as plugin Google Analytics by MonsterInsights) stats and tracking systems are uncomparably superior over useless “POST-VIEWS” plugins, because these drawbacks:
– There are tons of bots, crawlers, search or aggregation engines, that view your websites and pages daily, and “view your posts”. That ends up in fake/boosted “Post views” dramatically.
Beside bots, many people just …:
– people open the pages in the background and close them without reading at all
– open the pages, but close while site is still loading
– open the pages, but close quickly, under 1-2 seconds, without reading your pages..
– and many other reasons.
All these actions still increases the Post-views counter. SO, TO SAY FRANKLY, SUCH NUMBERS WOULDN’T HELP FINALLY, INSTEAD, THEY JUST MISLEAD YOU AND YOUR DECISIONS.
… What is solution?
We praise Google Analytics (or alike) tracking systems. THIS IS WHAT THEY ARE MADE FOR. This is the field, where they know what to do. Just state-of-the-art. They give you statistics not only of page-views, average duration (seconds), Realtime , but other tons of statisctis, which will you the REALISTIC INFORMAION ABOUT YOUR POSTS AND WEBSITE, to make correct decisions.
YOU WILL NOT REGRET.
Just spend 2 minute to sign up for Google Analytics, get the code and use “Google Analytics” plugin.
